SPECIFICATIONS
LC15-110
Dear Player,
Thank you very much for purchasing your new Laney product and becoming part of the worldwide Laney
family. Each and every Laney unit is designed and built with the utmost attention to care and detail, so I trust
yours will give you many years of enjoyment.
Laney products have a heritage which stretches back to 1967 when I first began building valve amplifiers in
my parent’s garage.
Since then we have moved on from strength to strength developing an extensive range of guitar, bass, public
address and keyboard amplification products along with a list of Laney endorsees that includes some of the
world’s most famous and respected musicians.
At the same time we believe we have not lost sight of the reason Laney was founded in the first place - a
dedication to building great sounding amplification for working musicians.
Warm Regards,
Lyndon Laney CEO
The LC15-110 is a no nonsense 15W all tube combo amplifier, its 15W Class A/B output stage oozes classic, warm
tube tones: The harder you drive it, the better it sounds. Plus with enough gain for contemporary tones, it also has
a mean, spiteful side to it as well – making it ideal for any style of playing. Perfect for studio and practice use, but
also equally at home or on stage plugged into a Laney 4x12” cabinet, the sound will blow you away. The LC15-110
includes a built in footswitchable reverb with level control; FX loop with switchable level & by-pass for total
flexibility.
Your LC15-110 should give you years of trouble-free amplification, however please take time to read this manual
and familiarise yourself with the controls as it will allow you to get the best from your amplifier. We hope you
enjoy using your LC15-110 as much as we enjoyed designing and making it.
Best wishes from all at Laney

1
HI INPUT: ‘Hi’ stands for high gain. This input is designed for the connection of low output level guitars making it well
suited for guitars with single coiled or low gain humbucker type pickups. Use of high gain pickups in this input may drive the
preamp too hard causing a "mushy" sound. Only use good quality guitar cable.
2
LO INPUT: ‘Lo’ stands for low gain. This input is attenuated down approximately 50% from the Hi input and is designed for
high output level guitars. It is useful in obtaining output that is "tight" not "mushy" from high gain humbucker type pickups.
Only use good quality guitar cable.
3
DRIVE: Sets the level of tube preamplifier drive or how dirty your sound is. This control should be used in conjunction with
the Volume (6) Setting low levels of gain with high levels of volume will give a clean preamplifier sound with tube output stage
overdrive. Setting a medium drive level and medium volume will give a nice crisp bluesy tone, again with the ability to drive
the output stage at higher volume settings. Setting a high level on the Drive control and a low setting on the Volume will give
you a punchy hard rock tone, with the ability to again drive the output tubes at higher Drive volume settings. Having set the
Drive and Drive Volume controls to your desired sound try backing off your guitar volume and tone controls for lots of other
cool sounds. Good tube amplifiers have the unique ability to produce a wide range of sounds by using only your guitar
controls, playing weight and style.
LC15-110
4
BRIGHT: Adds brightness and life to the treble frequencies of your guitar when on the clean channel. The switch has more
effect at low Clean Volume control settings. Use in conjunction with the Treble and Tone controls for optimum performance.
5
BASS, MIDDLE,TREBLE: These are a traditional set of passive tone controls for the clean channel. Passive controls have
the advantage of always sounding musical at any of their settings mainly due to their unique interactive nature. This gives
players a more natural set of tools to create their ideal sound. (Try them all set at midway (5) as a good starting point).
6
VOLUME: Sets how loud the clean channel is. Try cranking it up a little to drive the power tubes harder for that real retro
sound and feel that only a quality tube amplifier can deliver. Now use your guitar volume to control the amount of distortion.
7
TONE: The tone control works in a similar fashion to the Tone control you probably have on your guitar except that it
uniquely works at the other end of the amplification chain. This has the ability to not only control the overall top end
response but also reduce upper end harmonics on the output stage and preamplifier overdrive sounds. This will give you
bright cutting sounds at high settings and smooth rounded sounds at lower settings. (Midway (5) is a good starting point)
8
REVERB: Controls how loud the built in reverb sounds.
9
POWER LED: This led will be lit when the amplifier is switched on.
10
POWER: Main power switch for the unit. Tube amplifiers take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes to warm up and be ready
to play after switching on, this is normal.
(Always switch off and disconnect the power cord when not in use)

POWER FUSE: This drawer contains the main safety fuse for the unit. The fuse protects the AC power to the amplifier.
USE ONLY THE CORRECT SIZE AND RATING OF FUSE AS SPECIFIED ON THE PANEL. If a fuse blows or fails and a
replacement of the same size and rating is installed and it in turn blows, the amplifier has suffered a malfunction internally and
needs immediate service from a qualified technician. DO NOT TRY USING A FUSE OF HIGHER RATING. Using a fuse that
is too large in current rating may cause serious, irreparable damage to the amplifier and presents a serious fire hazard. The
mains fuse ratings are detailed in the specs section on page 7 of this manual.
3
HT FUSE: This fuse protects the DC power to the tubes within the amplifier. USE ONLY THE CORRECT SIZE AND
RATING FUSE AS SPECIFIED ON THE PANEL. If a fuse blows or fails and a replacement of the same size and rating is
installed and it in turn blows, the amplifier has suffered a malfunction, at this point check the output tubes and replace faulty
ones if required. Should tubes not be the problem the amplifier should be checked out by a qualified technician. Do not try
using a fuse of greater value. Using a fuse that is too large in current rating may cause serious, irreparable damage to the
amplifier. Fuses are designed to protect, do not take chances.

suited to being between the guitar and amplifer input - these are foot pedal types / distortion / wah wah pedals etc. Rack
mount effects will work better in the FX loop on the amplifer rear. Stomp boxes are normally designed for small signals such
as a guitar output whereas rack mount FX are designed for the higher signal level obtained from an FX send. This socket can
also be used as a Line Level Out.

BY-PASS/LEVEL SWITCH: This switch allows the effects loop to be by-passed if not in use, it also gives you the option
of running the FX loop at 0dB (750mV) or at -10dB (250mV) to suit your processor.
6
EFFECTS LOOP: RETURN: Connect the output from your external effects to this socket. The effects loop allows you to
connect external effects such as tremolo’s, chorus and delays to your amplifier. All of the signal leaves the amplifier via the
`Send’ socket and comes back from the effects via the `Return` socket. Use the output level control on your FX to control
how loud the FX return signal sounds. This is an insert type control, therefore you need to set the Dry/ Wet mix in your FX
processor.

FOOTSWITCH SOCKET: Provided for the connection of a Laney FS1 footswitch (optional).
8
EXTENSION CABINET: Use to connect an 8-16 ohm extension cabinet. Please note mismatched impedance will reduce
the amplifiers performance and in some cases may cause damage to your amplifier. Try the LC15-110 into a Laney extension
cabinet - you will be amazed what this baby cranks out.

TUBE AMPLIFIER SURVIVAL TIPS
• Tube amplifiers; generally sound much warmer/sweeter than solid state transistor amplifiers but they also need a little
more respect due to the fragile glass tubes themselves. The LC15-110 uses top quality tubes, which should give you years of
trouble free service, however like all tube amps; it is important to treat it with a certain amount of care.
• Tubes are fragile glass components; they can easily be damaged if thrown in and out of vehicles,
• Make sure the impedance; of your cabinets matches the setting on your amplifier. Improper impedance matching will
result in reduced output power output and compromised sound at best and amplifier failure/premature tube failure at worst.
• Allow the amplifier; to warm up to room temperature before switching it on, The sudden thermal shock generated can
crack the cold glass tube housing plus any moisture is bad news around high voltage electronics.
• Allow the amplifier; to cool down after playing before moving. Hot tubes are more susceptible to damage than cool
ones.Use good quality loudspeaker leads, cheap leads are often not up to the job of handling the large requirements for
loudspeakers and can often short out.
• Tube amplifiers; don't like running into a open circuit. A tubes life expectancy is based upon a number of factors which
include operating temperature, how hard and how often it is played, vibration due to travel etc. Tubes should be changed in
your amplifier if you notice any change in your amplifiers performance etc. They need not be changed at any regular interval.
• Typical problems; with preamp tubes can be a crackly noise, hiss, hum and microphony. The preamp tubes can safely be
changed with no action required if they fail or reduce in performance. Typical output tube problems can be blown HT fuse;
sound lacking in punch, sound lacks extreme highs or lows and low level hum. The Output tubes can be replaced singularly if
you replace them with the exact same type AND grade as factory fitted otherwise they should be replaced as a set. See the
diagram following to see how to check the tube grade fitted. Exact replacement preamp tubes and matched sets of output
tubes are available from Laney via your dealer.
• To change a tube; switch off the unit and unplug from the mains supply. Wait for the tubes to cool down. Lay amplifier
down on its front face and remove the protective grille held in place with four screws. You should now be able to access the
underside of the amplifier chassis. Preamp tubes are protected with a screen can, to remove; gently twist the screen can anti
clockwise and then pull up. The tube can then be gently pulled out. Take care when pushing the new tube in to make sure the
pins are all aligned properly. Output tubes have a spring retainer which must be pulled away before the tube will come out.
• Amplifier connection; In order to avoid damage, it is advisable to establish and follow a pattern for turning on and off
your equipment. With all system parts connected, effects processors etc. BEFORE turning on your guitar amplifier. Many
products have large transient surges at turn on and off which can cause damage to your speakers. By turning on your guitar
amplifier LAST and making sure its Volume controls are set to minimum any transients from other equipment will not reach

system always turn down the Volume controls on your guitar amplifier and then turn off its power before turning off other
equipment.
